Been plowing with a lifted S.D. / Boss v-plow for many years now and the visibility is far better than a stock truck !! I have never had a single problem with the truck or the plow/mount, it now has 170k miles on it.
Last I checked, truck hoods are OPAQUE. You can't see through it, and lifted, its a HUGE block to sight. The more you lift the truck, the farther ahead of you things need to be in order to be seen. This is simple physics.
Get somebody to take a profile picture of your truck with you in it, and draw a line from your eyes, contacting the hood at the highest point, and to the ground. See all that stuff behind the point it contacts the ground? That's what you can't see
. Now modify the picture to lower the truck, notice how that area gets smaller?
